S1E32 – Quick Dictations – Her Rabbit was a Murderer

Episode Notes

A new weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.

How to use:

  1. Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
  2. Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
  3. Check your text with the text of the dictation. If any word is different, it is probably a listening comprehension mistake. Try to listen again to the word and repeat the pronunciation a few times. If you don’t understand the word when you read it; it is probably new vocabulary.
  4. Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.

Transcript:

I used to have a pet. It was a guinea-pig. His name was Geoffrey. My sister also had a pet which was a rabbit. Geoffrey was a very shy pet while my sister’s rabbit was quite aggressive. They lived together in a pen in the garden. One day, I couldn’t find Geoffrey. I looked all over the garden. He was nowhere to be found. I eventually found him. He was inside one of the rabbit’s holes. The hole had collapsed. His body had been flattened. He had died. I still think that that rabbit is a murderer.
